Wall art that depicts rural life, vases bought from the local antique store, vintage wire shelving and a warm, earthen color palette emphasize the farmhouse-centric theme of the dining room. You can easily give this space a more modern aura by replacing some of the rustic features with modern cabinets, credenzas, rugs and drapes. It is all about finding out what works for you best!
Our dinner plates are a discontinued pattern from Crate & Barrel (learn more about the Claire pattern here). The teal appetizer plates come from CB2 and are a gloriously affordable $1.99 apiece! We love the idea of topping each plate with a special bite, such as round crackers covered in goat cheese and pink peppercorn. Our greenery was picked up at the local market, labeled “California filler” and sold for $3 a bunch!
A big oriental rug that can easily accommodate the entire dining area will bring a fresh energy into a countryside dining room. The colors of the rug are the room’s focal point and the whole space feels harmonious! Sometimes the best thing you can put into a dark dining room is a light rug! The balance in the room is very apparent. The space instantly feels more open, brighter and not too dim.
The first table setting features napkins with a dash pattern, as well as silver flatware. The look is cool and crisp, while the flowers and abstract napkin pattern combine to create a whimsical feel. The green border on the napkins is repeated in the blue-green hue of the appetizer plate, while the rosy tint of the pink peppercorn on the appetizer cracker mirrors the purple edges of the centerpiece greenery:
If you have great love for magnificent antique dining rooms, you know that a rug is an irreplaceable decor element that has the power to make or break the room. The safest option is to go with a rug that fully matches the rest of the rustic furniture, but if you aren’t afraid to create a slightly daring look, pick a rug that is proudly showcasing some color! A dining room in Victorian style calls for a vivid rug that can contrast the beige chairs and transparent glass table.
